Stop us if you’ve heard this before. Monsters, werewolves, vampires, and demons–they’re all real. They just prey in the shadows and hope that nobody finds out they exist. It’s up to Dylan Dog (played by former Superman Brandon Routh) to keep them in line and preserve the balance between good and evil.
Sure, it’s a little bit Constantine and a little bit Hellboy, but how often is it that you get a former Superman and a former Jimmy Olsen together again in pretty much the same roles? Not often enough, is the correct answer. Here’s the full synopsis for those still clinging to hope.
DYLAN DOG: DEAD OF NIGHT is a new horror/comedy film based on one of the world’s most popular comics (60 million copies worldwide). Brandon Routh stars as Dylan Dog, world famous private investigator specializing in affairs of the undead. His PI business card reads “No Pulse? No Problem.” Armed with an edgy wit and carrying an arsenal of silver and wood-tipped bullets, Dylan must track down a dangerous artifact before a war ensues between his werewolf, vampire and zombie clients living undercover in the monster infested backstreets of New Orleans.
The film was in development hell (pun intended) for quite some time, but it looks like it’s finally making its way into theaters on April 29th. Check out the full trailer after the jump.
